Old school.

yeah! no school like old school! one of the first bass lines i learned. barnes is puttin’ it down as good as edwards. love how he brought in “bounce, rock, skate, roll” (6:41) and then a little bit of “slide” (6:58) toward the end. real stuff!

An iconic blast from the past. Such a great bass line. Barnes ‘brought it’ and then some. Great tone & li’l fills towards the end of the song. Just a Good Time : )



Thanks Mr Edwards…!!
